I've just been informed by a friend that the Windows SDK for Windows 8.1 will regain compiler and library support for Win32/64 development.
That's great news.
It was quite painful to watch my friends having to download and install Visual Studio Express just for getting the libraries and 'cl.exe'.
If it's true, I'm switching over to Windows 8.1 (from Windows 7 Professional) as soon as it becomes available.
